If we weren’t so disgusted by the sheer stupidity of the email, we’d probably still be laughing.
University of Connecticut Vice President and ‘Chief Diversity Officer’ (no, that’s not a joke) Joelle Murchison sent an email to students this week in anticipation of a lecture by outspoken conservative pundit Ben Shapiro.
The email encourages students to take advantage of on-campus counseling in light of the fact that Shapiro’s views are ‘concerning and even hurtful’.
God forbid these students — who allegedly are attending school to get an education — should encounter opposing viewpoints.
This snowflake millennial generation is a far cry from the virtues displayed by the greatest generation.
Here’s more from Washington Examiner…
Ahead of Wednesday night’s lecture by conservative commentator Ben Shapiro, campus administrators at the University of Connecticut urged students whose feelings may have been hurt to take advantage of the university’s counseling services.
In an email addressed to the entire student body, Joelle Murchison, the Associate Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer for UConn, warned students about the Shapiro lecture and expressed understanding for those students who may feel triggered by the event.
“We understand that even the thought of an individual coming to campus with the views that Mr. Shapiro expresses can be concerning and even hurtful,” wrote Murchison, “and that’s why we wanted to make you aware as soon as we were informed.”
In her email to students, Murchison describes Shapiro as “an American conservative political commentator, columnist, author, radio talk show host, and lawyer.” Because Shapiro possesses these credentials, however, it apparently became necessary for UConn to alert students.
